Prague, Czechoslovakia, (/P) — Czechoslovakia's communist goy- ernment scrapped its friendship pact with Yugoslavia Tuesday and demanded that the Yugoslav ambassador to Prague be recalled immediately. There was no immediate indication that the demand for the recall of Yugoslav Ambassador Marijan Stilinovic meant a final break in steadily worsening diplomatic relations between the 2 countries. The announcement, read over Prague radio, said the Czech government considered the ambassador's presence in Prague as undesirable, accusing h i s embassy staff of including spies linked with an unnamed western power. Previously Russia, Poland, Hun- .gary, Bulgaria and Romania had denounced their friendship and mutual air treaties Xvith Tito but they had stopped short of breaking diplomatic ties. The Czech statement announcing the move said it had been definitely established that the Yugoslav ambassador's staff in Prague had included "agents and provocateurs" sent by Yugoslavia into Czechoslovakia for espionage and to create unrest. Similar c h a r g es had been sounded by Russia and other cominform (Communist International Information Bureau) countries. They said that the Budapest treason trial for former Hungarian Foreign Minister Laszlo Rajk, sentenced to be hanged, proved that Tito was conspiring to overthrow the Moscow-backed satellite governments. New Schoolhouse Davenport, (JP) —Fire of undetermined origin early Tuesday morning destroyed the nearly completed $30,000 addition to Green Acres school which was to have been ready for classes within 2 weeks. Green Acres is a small community just north of Davenport. The blaze was reported to have started near the heating plant. Volunteer firemen from Maysville, Dixon, Bettendorf, Walcott and Eldridge kept the flames irom spreading to nearby homes and the old school building. Harold West, secretary of the Davenport township school board, said the building which was fashioned from army barracks, was insured. Hog Supports to Be 11 to 22 Per Cent Below Current Prices Iowa's Farm Price Index Shows Rise DCS Moines, (U.R) — The Iowa Crop and Livestock Reporting service said Tuesday the index of prices received by Iowa farmers advanced 8 points to 274 last month. The prices paid index dropped 7 points to 262 and the index of prices paid to prices received increased 6 points to 105, the service said. The increase in the prices received index was due mainly to a 12 point rise in the livestock market, the service said. The service said the farmers' exchange position improved be- Washhiffton, (/F) — The government announced M9nday it will support producer pi-ices of hogs from October through next March at levels ranging between 11 and 22 per cent below current market prices, The monthly support rates for all hogs, on a national average at the farm, were set by the agriculture department as follows: October $16.40 for 100 pounds; November $15; December $14.20; January $14.90; February $15.50; and March $16.20. These rates are designed to assure producers at least 90 percent of parity. Parity is a farm product price goal designed to keep farmers on a basis of economic equality with non-farmers. Below Current Price Officials said the October support level of $16.40 compares with current average prices of $18.25. In other words current prices are a.bout 11 per cent above the government guarantee. Prices would have to drop about $4.05 or 22 per cent to reach the support level. in December—the lowest figure at which hogs will be supported during the 6 month period. If prices should dip to support levels, the department will move to strengthen them by buying pork and pork products and removing them from regular market channels. The department set up a schedule of so - called price support guides to be used in determining, at any particular time, whether price support buying is necessary. Russia Threatens War, Tito Claims Belgrade, Yugoslavia, (U.R)—Mar- shal Tito has accused the Soviet Union of threatening Yugoslavia with war and served notice the Yugoslav army is prepared to defend the country "until the last breath," it was disclosed Monday night. In a speech to 600 general officers and high ranking officials at a lunch "sometime and somewhere in Yugoslavia" and released Monday night by the information office, Tito declared: "No one had the right, regardless of who he may be, to threaten such a country (Yugoslavia) with war simply because the peo- Sees Early Decline in Polio Cases Des Moines, (/P)—You can look for a further decline pretty soon in the number of polio cases in Iowa, the state health department said Tuesday.

At the same time Tito said that former Hungarian Foreign Minister Laszlo Rajk, who was sentenced to death in Budapest for alleged spying on behalf of Yugoslavia, had been taken to Moscow after his arrest to be prepared for his trial. Nine-tenths of the big gama Agree to Put Off Civil Rights Bill Washington, (/P) — Democratic congressional leaders and President Truman agreed Monday that congress should put off consideration of civil rights measures until the session starting in January. Senator Lucas of Illinois, democratic floor leader, said after a conference with the president that "it seems doubtful that a prolonged discussion of any civil rights bill at this session would be helpful." Lucas said a fair employment practices commission measure probably would be the first to be considered in January. Lucas said he thought this session of congress would be wound up in 2 Hiss Wants 2nd Trial in Vermont New York, (U.R)—Alger Hiss announced Monday that he will attempt to have his 2nd trial on a charge of perjury moved to Vermont. Hiss said in a statement released by his attorneys that the extensive publicity given his first trial "precludes the possibility of an impartial trial in New York." At the same time, Hiss announced he had retained Claude B. Cross of a Boston law firm as trial counsel, replacing Lloyd Paul Stryker, of New York. Hiss is scheduled to go on trial again Oct. 10. His first trial ended last July in a disagreement by the jury* cause of a 7 point drop in the prices paid index. The index period runs from the 15th of one month to the 15th of the following month, so that the latest figures available are as of Sept. 15. On Sept. 15, 1948, the prices received index stood at 348, the prices paid index stood at 275 and the index of prices paid to prices received was 127. 7 Markets These guides are based on the weekly average prices of barrows and gilts at 7 midwestern markets—Chicago, St. Louis National stockyards, South St. Paul, Sioux City, Omaha, Kansas City and k;UlUlJ al Ct * VVlLll I n»«- ff*u**WM.J _ _ — week: Polk, 5 cases against 10 the ammais in the United States are week' before, and Clinton, Des' Moines and Franklin with 3 each.

Corn Support to Be $7.40 Per Bushel Washington, (U.R)—The agriculture department has announced it will support producer prices of this year's corn crop at rates averaging $1.40 a bushel, farm basis. Supports averaged $1.44 on the record-breaking 1948 crop. Supports will be available through government loans and purchase agreements. The loan rates on the 1949 crop will vary, by counties, from $1.29 to $1.66 a bushel depending on nearness to markets. The purchase agreement rates will be the same. Support rates on last year's crop ranged from $1.34 to $1.63 for loans and $1.34 to $1.66 for purchase agreements. The supports, as required by law, were set at 90 per cent of the Oct. 1 parity price of $1.55 a bushel. A slight drop in farm production and in living costs 'accounted for the slight dip in support rates in corn. Supports will be available until next June 1. The government will begin taking over corn left under the program next July 31. With a reserve carry over of about 800,000000 bushels from last year's crop on hand, corn generally has been selling below support rates. that (1) The guides are based on prices of top quality hogs, whereas the national monthly support levels are based on prices of all hogs, and (2) the guides reflect prices at markets, which include transportation and other marketing costs while the national average is based on prices at the farm.

'sold Winter Babes More Apt to Be Famous New York, (U.R)—Research by an Ohio scientist disclosed Tuesday that babies conceived in the winter or cool months have a better chance to become famous. The report comes from Dr. Clarence A. Mills, professor of experimental medicine at the University of Cincinnati, in the magazine Science, official publication of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. Mills said that temperature bears "an importance to man far beyond the mere matter of his hour-to- hour comfort." "In some places," he said, "it lays a heavy hand, stagnating hand over his life and holds him to a vegetative existence; in others, it generates an energy and progressiveness which drives him forward with irresistible impetus." The hot months of July and August—even in the temperature zone—can effect the future of the child, according to Mills. He said that babies "planned" in those 2 hot months have a "low likelihood" of ever making "Who's Who," or becoming president. It's because hot temperature causes physiological changes in the parents that affect their offspring, according to Mills.
